Maya Angelou said to Oprah

Posted by saw on September 22, 2004, at 2:09:17

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Maya
really is a marvel who has led quite an interesting and exciting life. Oprah
asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she
said it was "exciting." Regarding body changes, she said there were many,
occurring her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will
reach her waist, first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a
simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words. "I've learned that no
matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will
be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the
way he/she handled these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled
Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship
with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've
learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've
learned that life sometimes gives you second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't
go through life with catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw
something back. "I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open
heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have
pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach
out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the
back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will
forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never
forget how you made them feel."
